​​The Emmanuel  Communion

Greeting from the Archbishop’s Chair

Emmanuel … “God With Us.” When our humble communion received the call from God to form, we went to a time of prayerful discernment. A number of ideas were contributed for an identifier that would express our mission and purpose in His Kingdom. Names were presented, discussed and dismissed as we sought an appropriate moniker that would speak to our hearts and resonate with our collective spirits and our purpose.

In this time of worldly confusion, chaos, spiritual doubt, immorality and the general degradation of human dignity we need to be reminded that God is always with us. The battle cry of the Emmanuel Communion (EC) is just that … “God With Us!”

As a group of dedicated and committed followers of Jesus the Christ, our sole purpose in life is to reveal the truth of God’s presence among us and to make known His promise… “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” In a world that is trying to deny the power and authority of the Creator in our lives, there is a need for more voices crying in the wilderness … “Prepare ye the way of the Lord!”

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Without our acceptance of His sacrifice on the cross, none will come into the presence of the Living God. Our mission in the EC is to open the way for people to come to Him now. He is here… now… with us!

The Emmanuel Communion is a Liturgical, Evangelical, and Spirit-filled body of believing Christians seeking to make God’s presence in the earth a reality in the lives of His children. Welcome.

Pax Christi,
Archbishop Edward J. Skiba, OSB
